#REVIEW: Getaway With God by Letitia Suk

Genre: Christian Life

Synopsis:What if a simple day away could transform your life?
Does spending time with God sound like just one more thing to check off an ever-increasing to-do list? How are you supposed to fit in anything that threatens to be more time-consuming? Too often there's simply no room to experience the intimacy, grace, and peace that God offers us.
Getaway with God does more than invite you to step away from life's pressures to take a personal retreat. It shows you exactly why you must--for your sake and for your family's.
With grace and warmth, Letitia Suk provides step-by-step guidance and the necessary tools to enable any woman on any budget to plan time away, whether it's a quick, half-day break or a weeklong time of restoration. You'll find detailed steps for preparation, including descriptions of different kinds of retreats and how to choose the best one for you, and you'll learn ways to bring the renewal you experience home with you. Practical appendixes identify retreat centers nationwide and provide exercises and prayers to kick-start your getaway with God.
"No matter what your season in life, the time for retreat is now!

My rating: 4 stars

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I think I was expecting something different, something I could do more day to day from this book. The book instead is how to make time in your life to go away to a retreat center (a few links are listed in the last appendix). The author lists the different types of retreats there are: one day, multiday, weekend, planning, restorative, or listening. Planning by far was probably the one more like me, however, I plan so much in my daily life as it is, I would truly need more listening, and learning type retreat. She also lists things to take for your retreat, whether to fast or not, silence or not.
The author provides so much as far as what is expected, what you can expect, this really is a book for a retreat beginner, a total newbie, or it could be for someone who is ready to step out on their own and do their own retreat instead of tagging along with the women's group at the church.
If you are ready to take that step and go on your own, this book is indispensable.
